TVXQ fans submitted a petition that had 121,073 signatures to the National Human Rights Commission of Korea on August 28th at 1:30 pm. The petition was full of the fans' hopes for their stars to have lawful protection for their human rights.
TVXQ fans said, "The exclusive contract between TVXQ and SME is so unlawful and so violating of basic human rights that it is hard to believe that this is the contract between the nation's best idol group and the nation's best entertainment agency," and "This contract shows the dark, sinister side of the Korean agency and is shocking the nation."
Additionally, they said, "SME, through the fact that they have bound TVXQ to a 13 year contract that can be classified as a life-contract as that is almost how long the span of a singer's career is and through an unchanging, slack management system, is violating and damaging the human rights of TVXQ and the value of TVXQ as artistes and as Korea's youth"
TVXQ fans said, "We hope that they will be able to escape from this violation of human rights as quickly as possible and we hope that the National Human Rights Commission of Korea will help us protect the rights of TVXQ."
TVXQ's YoungWoong Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun and Xiah Junsu filed for an Exclusive Contract Validity Suspension and Provisional Disposition Request against their agency SM Entertainment on July 31st.
